Initiatives for “Amplifying AAC Voices” campaign

Additionally, did you know…? USSAAC is undertaking a variety of initiatives to raise funds for our “Amplifying AAC Voices” campaign.

Virtual Auction

The first activity is a virtual auction to fund our AAC Speaker Connection – an online directory of AAC users to match them with faculty, schools, self-advocacy and parent groups, community organizations, and others who are interested in hearing the authentic voices of people who use AAC. 

The virtual auction will be held October 1 – October 15, 2021 as part of AAC Awareness Month. We need your support! Please contact virtualauction@ussaac.org  if you have a product or service you are willing to donate, or for more information on this exciting endeavor.
